Malaysia Airlines Flight 370
The missing aircraft, 9M-MRO in 2011
Date 8 March 2014
Missing 239 (all)
Aircraft type Boeing 777-200ER
Operator Malaysia Airlines
Flight origin Kuala Lumpur International Airport
Destination Beijing Capital International Airport
Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (MH370/MAS370) was a scheduled international passenger flight that disappeared on Saturday, 8 March 2014, while flying from Kuala Lumpur International Airport to Beijing Capital International Airport. Air traffic control received the aircraft’s last message at 01:20 MYT (17:20 UTC, 7 March) when it was over the South China Sea, less than an hour after takeoff. It was last plotted by military radar at 02:15 over the Andaman Sea, 320 kilometres (200 mi) northwest of Penang state in northwestern Malaysia. At 07:24, Malaysia Airlines (MAS) reported the flight missing. The aircraft, a Boeing 777-200ER, was carrying 12 Malaysian crew members and 227 passengers from 15 nations.
A multinational search effort, which became the largest and most expensive in history, began in the Gulf of Thailand and the South China Sea, where the flight’s signal was lost on secondary surveillance radar, and was soon extended to the Strait of Malacca and Andaman Sea. On 15 March, based on military radar data and transmissions between the aircraft and an Inmarsat satellite, investigators concluded that the aircraft had diverted from its intended course and headed west across the Malay Peninsula, then continued on a northern or southern track for around seven hours.
The focus of the search shifted to the southern part of the Indian Ocean, west of Australia.:1 In the first two weeks of April, aircraft and ships deployed equipment to listen for signals from the underwater locator beacons attached to the aircraft’s “black boxes”. Four unconfirmed signals were detected between 6 and 8 April near the time the beacons’ batteries were likely to have been exhausted. A robotic submarine searched the seabed near the detected pings until 28 May, with no debris being found. An analysis of possible flight paths was conducted, identifying a 60,000 km2 (23,000 sq mi) search area, approximately 2,000 km (1,200 mi) west of Perth, Western Australia. The underwater search of this area began on October 5, 2014 and will last up to 12 months at a cost of A$60 million (approximately US$56 million or €41 million).
There has been no confirmation of any flight debris, and no crash site has been found, resulting in many unofficial theories about its disappearance. The only evidence of the plane’s flight path after it disappeared from military radar over the Andaman Sea are communications between the aircraft and a satellite over the Indian Ocean. Analysis of these communications by multiple agencies has concluded that the flight ended in the southern Indian Ocean. On 24 March, the Malaysian government, noting that the final location determined by the satellite communication was far from any possible landing sites, concluded that “flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean.”
At the time of its disappearance, and if the presumption of a loss of all lives aboard can be verified, Flight 370 would have been the deadliest aviation incident in the history of Malaysia Airlines and the deadliest involving a Boeing 777. Flight 370 was surpassed in both regards just 131 days later by the crash of another Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777, Flight 17, that was shot down over Ukraine on 17 July 2014, killing all 298 people aboard.

L.O- We are learning to analyse multi modal texts to compare to other texts, self and world.
Foci: 1) Compare a variety of texts and the meaning it is trying to portray. E.g- Home and away story to Heal the World song. Text to text, Text to Self and Text to World.2) Write a reflection on the texts. (200 words each entry) 3) On your Blog upload the various texts that you have researched (E.g- Embed the you tube clip on your Blog). 4) Choose at least three texts to analyse.
Navigate and read texts for specific purposes applying appropriate text processing strategies, for example predicting and confirming, monitoring meaning, skimming and scanning.
Use comprehension strategies strategies to analyse information, integrating and linking ideas from a variety of print and digital sources
this are three of the text I am doing.
For heal the world I have written text to text, text to self and text to world
